History of computers that need to be known in detail. The history begins with the development of computer discovery a man named Charles Babbage. He is a scientist in the world who have much to contribute to human life, especially the development of computers.

The discovery is phenomenal computing machine (Difference Engine No. 1) is one of the most famous discoveries in the history of the computer and is the first automatic calculator as the embryo kompuer. The discovery was made as the inventor Charles Babbage konpur and dubbed the father of the computer.

Here is the history of computers and its development:

1822: Charles Babbage proposed his idea of ​​a tool that can assist humans in performing calculations at a high level of complexity and complex. Machines buatanya unfinished is currently on at the Museum of Science musiumkan London.

1937: Dr. John V Atanasoff and Clifford Berry began making the first electronic digital computer design. They gave the name of the machine is the ABC (Atanasoff-Berry Computer). ABC engine capabilities are limited only count added and reduction.

1943: In World War 2, An English scientist named Alan Turing designed electronic computers made specifically for the British army. The purpose of making the computer so they can be used to penetrate the German defenses code.

1944: Howard Hathaway Aiken (American) made named Mark I. Is a digital countdown computer first. The computer has a 7.45 feet x 50 feet, with a weight of 35 tons. Mark I have can be used to calculate the probability.

1945: Dr. John von Neumann wrote a concept of data storage. At the time, was an idea.

1946: Dr. John W. Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert, jr. make the first large-scale computer, the computer name is ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer). The world also considers these two as the inventor of the digital computer.
Computer ENIAC weighed 30 tons, consisting of 18,000 light tube (transistor size), with a width of 30 feet x 50 feet, using 160,000 watts of power. When first operated First of all electricity in the Philadelphia region unexpectedly died.

ENIAC was a little more advanced than the Mark I, which is only able to calculate. ENIAC not only have the ability to count, add, less, times, for, but can also be programmed to perform a simple process.

1951: The U.S. Bureau of Cencus installed the first commercial computer called the UNIVAC I (Universal Automatic Computer). UNIVAC I was developed by Mauchly and Eckert for the Remington-Rand Corporation.

1947: William Shockley, John Bardeen, and Walter Brattain is the inventor of the world's first transistor. Since ditemukanya transistors, computers become increasingly smaller sizes.

Similarly, the history of computer development is derived from a variety of sources.
